This project is based on the process of plants growing and erosion. When you cut off a branch, the plant will just grow a different direction. We found a way to control an uncontrollable material like, Soft-foam by using wet-clay molds and organic textures. We chose for an uncontrollable artificial material to explore our material knowledge.
We started mixing soft-foam with other materials like stones, concrete, plaster and clay. We noticed that foam was not sticking to clay. From this moment we started to use clay as a mold.
We experimented with LED techniques inside the foam and we show how to use the foam in furniture or in daily objects.
